“Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.” ―
I always thought being an adult would be so much easier than it is. I think everyone does.
I remember reaching my 20s and thinking that I was so mature, yet knowing I was not ready for the world.
By the time I hit my 30s, I had two young children and was in a desperately unhappy marriage. My children where my focus and I thought I had it all under control.
By the time I hit my 40s, I’d been through a horrible divorce, chronic illness, new love, growing children, a new child at 40, mortgage payments, bills, bills bills…
I’m only 45 now. I’m still young. What have I learned about being and adult in this time? It’s hard as fuck. It can be rewarding as hell. It’s usually a rollercoaster of ups and downs, life and death, bliss and deep depression.
I’m an adult now. I think.
